Gartner recognizes The Test Leaders’ NORIZZK.COM as an independent pure-play vendor that is test-management-focused.

The Test Leaders is a specialist in test management and coordination with the objective to reduce operational and business risks in IT projects.

Brussels, BELGIUM – November 19, 2015: The Test Leaders, specialist in risk based test management, announces that its SaaS platform NORIZZK.COM is referenced in Gartner’s Market Guide for Test Management Tools(1). Gartner identified The Test Leaders as a Representative Vendor and an independent pure-play vendor with its risk-based test management platform NORIZZK.COM.

According to Gartner, “Gartner has found that the manual testing process is still the largest portion of time spent on a typical project. Organizations are struggling to keep up with the rapid changes, varying complexity, and diversification of business and technology. Test management tools are imperative to the success of an organization’s software testing for high-quality software, faster pace of delivery and improved efficiency.’

NORIZZK.COM was designed to fulfill the needs of The Test Leaders’ customers in reducing and mitigating the risks introduced by the rapid changes and increase of complexity in their IT projects. Where the classic test management tools stop, NORIZZK.COM takes a leap forward. Replacing a static and heavy test process by a smart, dynamic and lightweight test approach allows the user to fully focus on his/her operational and business risks. The platform not only helps reducing these risks but also helps to test smarter, lightweight and more complete.

Smarter: NORIZZK.COM helps you identify the high risk areas of your project. It indicates and visualizes where you should do extensive testing, which tests you should document, where you should only do exploratory testing, your daily priorities, when you are done with testing, which user stories and requirements should not be tested in case you run into time constraints.

Lightweight: Agile means delivering value to your business, quickly and easy. Documents are not always valuable to your business and they take time to write. NORIZZK.COM lets you document only what is important. Only document your tests if you need them more than once. NORIZZK.COM processes your test results and delivers a real-time quality picture, even if none of your tests are documented.

More complete: Developers focus on working code. You all should focus on working code. However functionality is only one quality attribute of your software or system. NORIZZK.COM helps you to focus on all quality attributes. Is security important in your project? What about performance, availability, usability, stability?

“We believe our inclusion as an independent pure-play vendor in the Gartner Research validates why our customers rely on The Test Leaders as a specialist in test management, test coordination and risk reduction,” says Gert Mentens, managing partner at The Test Leaders. “Our relentless pace of innovation is extending The Test Leaders’ lead in risk based test management and empowers our customers with the tools and capabilities required to test and mitigate their risks smart, lightweight and more complete. Where the classic test management tools stop, are we taking the next steps with NORIZZK.COM.”

Mr Steven Janis, the Project Manager for the New NATO Headquarters, said that using NORIZZK.COM helped the project team manage and focus their testing of its more than 2,500 test items. “The NORIZZK tool’s risk based approach proved helpful in reducing our overall testing time by changing our testing strategy from a convention test approach to one of risk focused management. Overall the tool helped us focus our testing on risk areas which reduced our overall testing time and effort, as well as that of our subcontractors. This gave our project team more time to think about and plan mitigation actions and implementation plans.”.
